Yes, that's exactly what I was meaning. IMO, only
R INSTALL dse
should change the global packages file, because only the we have
guarantee that a user can actually access the installed packages
(anything installed somewhere else might belong to somebody different
R INSTALL -l rlibs dse
shouldn't modify the global packages file, as a new one conforming to
the current .lib.loc get's built anyway when running help.start().
Any objections if I commit that change?
